    As I can allow a second user, access right only for my / public_html /. I am using Pure-FTP. Is this possible?

    That would be good, when the customer wants to give access to his/her webdesigner.

    Thank you.

    Dear bennet,

    In PureFTP every user can be individually restricted to a directory.This can be done by chroot() function in PureFTP.
    If a user is chrooted with ./directory,the user will have only access to that specfic directory.
    For example,

    user:x:501:100:user:/home/user/./public_html:/bin/zsh

    When the user logs in,user can\'t see anything but the home directory.so the session will start in the public_html directory and he is restricted to that directory only.

    For more information refer,
